    FYI – I had to create a new account to be eligible for this promotion, since I previously took advantage of it.

    Max – can you help me figure out what they mean by “stay” ? Will two separate “nights” not suffice ?

    I know this commonly comes up with hotel promotions.

      Hello Mark,

      A stay is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of check-in/check-out activity.

      So you must stay 2 non-consecutive nights in order to qualify.

      If you stay 2 nights in a row, that will not qualify.

      Hope this helps and good luck. Max
